Katadyn Hiker is among the smaller more portable models of water
filters available on the market. This light weight unit can conveniently
fit in a backpack to be transported where ever you may want to go.Even
the clearest looking water can contain dangerous microbes and
particles. Using a filter can cut down on your chances of getting a
nasty disease. The portable unit will take care of all of these
problems. A standard filter will handle the protozoa and bacteria, a
more "high tech" filter will also filter out viruses. These units come
standard with a filter that has activated carbon which also rids the
water of pesticides, chlorine, bad tastes and other organic and
inorganic substances.The Katadyn Hiker is a simple to use unit.
To work the unit simply attach the hoses, input hose to the bottom of
the unit, the output hose to the top of the unit. Place the hose into
the water making sure to not put the input hose on the bottom where
sediment can be sucked up into the unit. Pump the unit a few times to
flush the system. Once the system is flushed put the output hose into
the container of choice. Pump the handle until the container is full.
Empty the unit once you are finished.The Katadyn Hiker unit is
equipped with a field serviceable filter. The filter is surrounded by a
membrane that is simple to clean. This membrane keeps the filter from
getting clogged by items. Anything that is big enough to clog the filter
will get stuck in the membrane first. If the unit gets hard to pump
then it is probably a good idea to check the membrane and clean as
necessary.While you might consider the Katadyn Filter to be a
little expensive, running from $65 to $85 ot saves a lot of money and
energy once you consider that one filter in this unit will filter around
two hundred gallons. Plus, when you are considering that this unit is
light weight and easily carried in a backpack. Two hundred gallons are
impossible to take on the trail with you. The unit has little waste,
only the water filter when it has to be replaced, which will happen
eventually. This makes the unit very eco-friendly, no plastic bottles to
throw away in landfills to rot.
If you are looking for a great camping water filter you
can pick up and start using right away on your next camping trip, I
strongly recommend the Katadyn Hiker.You can get a Katadyn
Hiker pump or water bottle with attached filter, whichever seems
more convenient to you, and the other people you hike with.
